I use Jaikoz to pull the genres from Discogs style and for the most part it's great. However as there is no validation at Discogs, I can end up with several variations of what I see as the same genre across my collection. E.g. Alternative Rock, Alt.Rock, Alternative, Alt-Rock etc where I would be happy with "Alternative Rock" for all of these.

I can see how to blacklist genres, but is there any way to force use of what I want kinda like a host file idea? I.e. if Jaikoz picks up any of the previous examples it will add "Alternative Rock" to the genre field.

Apologies if this is already possible.

This is something I would love to see as well. It has been requested previously and Paul put in a ticket for it at: http://www.jthink.net:8081/browse/JAIKOZ-512

An absolute +1 on the idea mentioned in the ticket especially on the grey list (tag replacer).
I thought to use some of my christmas vacation for updating my music tags from musicbrainz. Basically working fine, but apparently there is little to no moderation on the genre and grouping fields. I was honestly appalled to see genres like "death by liver cancer" pop up.
Fortunately easy to fix via the blacklist feature, but it is a indicator for the "quality" of the musicbrainz genre/grouping tags I think.
So a replace by feature would be very welcome both for the genre and grouping fields (and maybe others).

Trying to find a solution for these fields I stumbled upon the last.fm plus Picard plugin for, obviously, the Picard tagger. I so far like what this plugin does, but I don't like what Picard (sorry captain) does with the rest of my tags. It sometimes replaces playing times I just updated with Jaikoz with question marks (3:14 becomes ??) and the track no. zero padding is removed etc. etc.
So as a request, would it be possible to incorporate this or simular functionality into Jaikoz?
Some information on the lastfmplus plugin can be found here:

Hi, yes this looks likely and there is already an issue for it
